Abstract
Occupational hazards associated with swine confinement (SIC-0279) operations are reviewed. Concepts and basic practices used throughout the industry are discussed. The hazards of high concentrations of pit gases composed of methane (74828), hydrogen- sulfide (7783064), ammonia (7664417), and carbon-dioxide (124389) are described, along with hazards related to dust and pathogenic organisms. NIOSH walk-through surveys in confinement operations in Iowa, Illinois, Colorado, and Missouri during fiscal year (FY) 1979 are discussed and planned studies for FY 1980 are presented. An appendix is included which describes sampling techniques for bacteria and organisms in air and dust, as well as endotoxin analysis.
